Recently, my chiropractor pushed a hiatal hernia back into place for me. I've had some symptoms that I have to figure are related to the hernia, but wanted to see if anyone here might have some experience with this.
My stomach will bloat, suddenly, and seemingly for no reason. It looks like I swalllowed a large ball. It will happen typically sometime after I've at least had one meal, could be right after, often hours after. Also, I feel extreme, strange dizziness along with this. Sometimes, my head feels stuffy. I will feel a fullness in my chest and have a bit of difficulty breathing, lots of gurgling in the stomach, gas moving around, pain in the upper back, usually one side or the other. Sometimes a sensation my heart skips a beat or even that something pushes on it. I feel hot sometimes, even a bit sweaty.
I had an echocardiogram, EKGs, and wore a heart monitor for 2 weeks, so I'm not believing this has anything to do with heart.
Has anyone else felt such strange and scary symptoms from a hiatal hernia? I've researched online but the info is so inconsistent.
